Cleaning Out & Organizing Coat Closet (Spring Cleaning)

Cleaning out and organizing our coat closet is something I have to tend to pretty often.Extra coats end up in here that don’t belong and since it’s not a large space I try to make sure the kids only have the coats in here that they are wearing at the time.

Check out the video below and see how I organize and clean out our coat closet.

Clean Chandelier Hack

Have you ever turned on the light in your room and everything appeared dim?My first thought is to check to see if anything is wrong with lightbulbs and to my surprise I see all of the build up that has began to accrue on the chandelier crystal drops.

Now, this is a task I avoid at all cost, cleaning the crystal drops.Although cleaning light fixtures are on my cleaning list, it’s something I skip over or surface clean until it get’s notably icky.I’ll look up at the chandelier then, look away, up at the chandelier and then walk right off. lol

But one day… while in the kitchen I looked at the dishwasher and that BIG’ OLE light bulb went off in my head.

PUT THEM IN THE DISHWASHER!

YES!

But before I tossed them all in the dishwasher and experience a total ruin and have to purchase all new ones, I did a test run.I took 3 pieces and ran them through a cycle to see how they hold up.I place two in the utensil holder and one on the top rack.

To my amazement they came out Cleznene! (clean in my Snoop Dog voice)

I also plan on using this technique with my ceiling fixture light domes as well. Now, depending on which room of the house the chandelier drops or light fixture domes are located, you may have minimum to maximum build up.For instance, my light comes in the kitchen get maximum grease build up quickly because they’re in the kitchen and I cook A LOT.In this case you may not have the same results.

What to do?

Soak chandelier drops or lobes first, remove excess dirt or grease and then place them in the dishwasher.

Now, let’s clean the chandelier drops.

  1. Remove chandelier drops.
  2. Check for excess dirt or grease build up.
  3. Pretreat any area that has excessive build up with some dish soap and remove it with some elbow grease and a towel.
  4. Place in the dishwasher.I placed mine on the top rack because the heating coil to dry the dishes are under the bottom rack.
  5. When load is complete, remove and dry with a towel.
  6. Place them back on the chandelier or light fixture.

Where are my vintage punch bowls now?

A few years ago I began collecting punch bowls and a couple years back I shared my collection when I first started collecting.A couple days ago I took a look at my current collection, one to make sure I haven’t went a hoarding and two to see have I completed any sets.

If, I remember correctly this Anchor Hocking Star of David was the first bowl I found and the one that set this whole collection thing off.With the exception of the pedestal because I didn’t find the pedestal until months later.I also have a smaller pedestal and 12 cups.

The others are in no order because I don’t remember the order 😉 Not shown is my Hazel Atlas Milk Glass Swirled Punch Bowl Set, but if you watch the video you’ll see it.(L to R) Soreno Avocado 2 Large & 1 Small Punch Bowl. Culver Punch Bowl 10 Glasses 22k Gold & Milk glass

This one here with the yellow and orange flowers is so awesome for summer.

Bowl to the very far right is a milk glass punch bowl with a brass base.

So, as you can see that I’ve collected a few more bowls and although I often call one of the bowls my favorite, they’re all my faves.Which ever one I’m using at the time is my favorite and I enjoy using them all.What can these bowls be used for?

  • Punch of course
  • Crafts- like you see here I have yarn in the milk glass bowl.
  • Salads and other foods
  • Any room in the house to store items

As you see punch bowls aren’t for punch only.
